    A blogger has copied and posted one of my hub on his blog. Despite my messages and mails to him, he has not taken any steps to remove the post or modified it to link back. I need help in reporting the blog post to Blogger Help so that they take swift action.

    The original post - http://hubpages.com/hub/101-Places-to-F … ence-Guide

    Copied post - http://www.teesmaarkhan.com/2008/07/101 … nline.html

    Please use the following link to report to blogger.

    Thanks And Regards

      Dear SunSeven:

      This is terrible. He/She should have provided the backlink to your original Hub. I will report this. If he doesn't listens, I will find out the way how to do it (Jab sidhi ungli se ghee nahin nikalta toh ungli tedhi karni padti hai).

      Regards!

      It looks like they are running adsense, so you might want to report them here as well.  I'm not sure if reporting them to blogger will be internally escalated the AdSense people or not.  Getting their blog shut down will hurt a little, losing their AdSense account will hurt a lot more.

      Good luck.

    Sunseven,

    It is sad they needed to copy your hub for there blog. It really is wrong of them. They did link back to your Hub though on the bottom of it.

    Just because it links back doesn't make copying it right. Hopefully you can get them to take it down.

    Best of Luck,

    This still seems ethically wrong because the source isn't listed on the blog.  Nobody would look to the source.  I know plagierism is rampant, but its too bad.  It looks like a lot of work went into SunSeven's hub. How do you find out it this is happening to you?  Do you have any tips?

      Try searching Google for your content by its title? I bet she searched her hub and that pulled up on Google.

    It's possible that the blogger in question doesn't even know that your post is on his blog.
    Many blogs these days run totally unattended, and the "author" doesn't even know what appears on them.

    The entire process is easy to automate.

    And by publishing your work with an RSS feed, you are effectively giving permission for it to be used elsewhere with proper attribution.
    (The last "S" in RSS stands for Syndication - which is the process of your work appearing in many, many different places.)

    And when I looked at it, the  "Source" link goes back to Sun Seven's hub.

    So, sorry - you have nothing to complain about. 
    (but what would I know. I'm not a lawyer) big_smile

    Yeah, the source link is alllll the way at the end of the post, so at least you'll get a backlink or whathaveyou.  It'd be nice if people asked permission though.

  9. ProCW profile image79
    ProCWposted 10 years ago

    If I'm not mistaken (which I could be,) the comments are what is syndicated on each hub and not the hub itself.

    Also, each hubber's profile is syndicated which allows the subscribers to get an update on the hub author's newly published hubs.

    RSS does mean syndication, however it doesn't mean that anyone other than the author has the authority to use and republish the content.

    The author's content remains the author's property. Anyone that uses that property without proper authorization (creative commons and other such licenses included) is committing a crime and can be punished and fined for such crimes.

    Am I correct in saying that? (Again... I could be mistaken.)

    It's all a bit of a grey area (Except for gamergirl's head - which is a pink/red area :-) )

    Many people are putting a disclaimer at the bottom of every article that is available by RSS.

      The HubPages RSS feeds only include a brief summary of the hub, so I don't see how anyone could interpret their availability as license to steal and repost the entire hub

        Thanks Paul, I didn't know that. SunSeven, I've made a complaint to Google Adsense.

    Hello SunSeven, I just posted a comment on his blog threatening him to either delete the post or shorten the post size and provide a noticeable Backlink or I will make shouts against his blog as SCAM get his Google Adsense Terminated which is very easy. Let me see what happens. Keep an eye.

      I guess your comment is moderated and then deleted.
      Is there any software that can disable an article from being copied...?
      Haha...
